Early Times Report

JAMMU, Jan 29: The incumbent management of the Indira Gandhi Government Dental College (IGGDC) Jammu has failed to start Post Graduate (PG) Course in the College despite the lapse of two years, owing to which the aspirants have to move outside the state.
Whereas Dental College Srinagar has been running PG course for last many years and numbers of aspirants are availing the benefits, but, since the establishment of IGGDC Jammu, the PG course has not been started due to the lethargic approach of the administration and officers despite having eligible faculty and requisite infrastructure.
Sources told Early Times that former Minister for Health and Medical Education Department, Bali Bhagat had assured that PG course would be started from academic session of 2017 but nothing has been done in this regard. Bali Bhagat not only betrayed the aspirations of the students but also misguided the Legislative Assembly during where he gave this assurance. Officials have taken dig on the then Minister for Health Bali Bhagat, for highlighting his achievements on social networking sites through his lieutenants but in reality the graph of the Health sector of the State especially Jammu fell down drastically and particularly the IGGDC, which is facing huge problems due to unavailability of basic necessities. Recalling the meeting and assurance, sources told that, last year, on November 25, 2016, the then Minister called a meeting with officials of the IGGDC and Government Medical College (GMC) Jammu and asked for completing the necessary formalities to run the PG courses in IGGDC and the, Minister also had assured that the Course would be started from next academic session but due to the lackadaisical approach of the concerned officers, the course is hanging in balance.
